in which olive, lemon and peach trees are planted

Time is measured

in trees;

those planted

and those removed,

their absence

met with silence,

impermanence.

Development.

 

Plant time in.

This time

an olive tree

sturdy in sun,

the lemon and peach

almost hedging

and hours

where the only sounds

were the wings

of the currawong
